some photos

I will try to create a slide show in the future but for now I wanted to share some of my favorite photos from Days 1 and 2.  Yesterday was spent mostly in airports and in the air.  Fourteen hours of air time to be exact.  As you can see, I was intrigued by food and drink in the Paris airport.  That's a tiramusa below. OMG.

Today we heard from speaker about the modern day women's movement in Jordan.  I will share more about that as soon as I get my thoughts them down.  There's a lot to process.  I also went to the Citadel today and an awesome bazaar.

 View from my hotel room. Notice the dust on the windows. 
Everything is very dusty here.  No one seems to mind.
Lunch today.  Middle Eastern food is eaten communally and is awesome. 

Remiders of America everywhere. 

 Close up on Subway menu.

 Bazaar today.  Jordanian men do not tend to make much eye contact with me. 
And they do kind of just gather like this everywhere, including the street. 
VERY communial--with other men.
Turns out this guy didn't want his photo taken.

  1. Those photographs can steal one's soul in some cultures, baby girl. Are you on American time still? (above--the midnight hour)
